Picture of the week (Capri Salad)

Filed under: Food,Picture of the week — Tags: , , , — Marcus @ 2:00 am

One of our favorite side dishes that Meagan and I like to make is Capri Salad, in the summer when we have access to decent tomatoes we tend to have this at least 1-2 times a week.  This is such a simple dish to make and it is hard to get tired of, and I am constantly trying to find ways to use up the basil off my basil tree in my Aquaponic system.


To make enough for two you will need the following:

2 Tomatoes
1 Mozzarella ball
1/2 Cup of Basil
Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Sauce
Salt
Pepper

Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella ball about 1/4″ thick, dice the basil into small strips.  Arrange the tomatoes and mozzarella however you like on a place, sprinkle the basil on top then drizzle a bit of the Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Sauce around the place.  Add salt and pepper to taste.


See wasn’t that easy?  Takes about 10 minutes start to finish and it tastes just as good as any salad you will get at a restaurant.  Also don’t skimp on the tomatoes, they are what makes this dish.  Also if you don’t have Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Sauce, you can just use regular Balsamic Vinegar.
